The 2023 John Lewis Christmas ad came out early Thursday, November 9. It was creative agency Saatchi & Saatchi’s first for the retailer, which for years has been looked after by Adam&EveDDB.

John Lewis is a leading light in UK Christmas advertising. Its high-profile work over the last decade-and-a-half has often captured both the headlines and the hearts of the British public.

However, after a year like no other, the retailer is up against it to bring festive cheer to a nation ready to celebrate after the last few years of dampened celebrations and economic slowdown.
